Metro produce supergloss Lambda prints for Susan Derges' latest exhibition

12 November 2012

Metro is delighted to have produced twenty-seven Supergloss Lambda prints for award-winning photographic artist Susan Derges to be shown at her latest exhibition at the Purdy Hicks gallery. The exhibition focuses on images taken over the past year of Blackaton, a small brook on Dartmoor, Devon close to Susan’s studio.

The beautiful and somewhat haunting images depict two different views of the brook's surface, from both above and below exploring themes of reflection and immersion.  The movement of the water, the ebb and flow evoke experiences of memory and loss, the flow of time and changing perceptions. Studying the pictures it is east to become disoriented by the water, crossings, bridges and gates which imitate everyday encounters but are not quite what they seem. Reflections falling onto the water's surface, views from its underside, shadows thrown across the undulating ripples of the brook all give rise to an experience similar to that of a dream state.

Susan Derges is one of the most critically acclaimed and respected artists working in photography today.  She has exhibited widely throughout Europe, America and Japan and her work is held in many major museum collections including the Metropolitan Museum in New York and the Victoria & Albert Museum in London.
